I worked on an enhancement for this feature that spans the entire Legacy Contact flow.

I collaborated with designers, UX writers, project managers, and engineers and reviewed my work with directors and VPs of design and engineering who provided support to implement my feature in the future. By the end of my internship, I created detailed design specifications for iOS, macOS, and web for handoff to engineering.
